The Caregiver

for a friend

the pull is so strong
blood red ruby
drawn
moth to immolation
pulled
the gravity of the bottle
an iron filing to the magnet
fall
to freedom

anesthesia

so tired
tried words
truth
no give left
given
out

giving out
failing
stalled in the air
you gasp
no quarter given
they stare at you

"but she has cancer"

you are nothing
fall
alone
